Broadmoor, Lakeview Get Millions to Fix Roads


For years, the crater-like potholes that engulf our streets have been the stuff of legend, and the occassional tall tale. But with recovery money coming in, there's been a renewed effort to make our streets a more like...streets. Late last week, the feds approved another batch of money to fix up the roads. Broadmoor will get $21.5 million to fix their streets, while parts of Lakeview including Lake Shore/Lake Vista and Milneburg will get a combined $8.8 million, according to Sen. Mary Landrieu's office. FEMA appropriated the money, which will also go to repair curbs and sidewalks. Sounds like more than just filler to these ears.
